Google Apps For Education Community Launch Over the last couple of months we have been working on a new partnership idea with the Google Apps For Education Team where we would create a Google Apps for Education Community. As I travel training teachers how to use Google Apps for Education, the most asked question was ‘What’s next?’ There are a select group of teachers who have the opportunity to be connected in the Google Certified Teacher Community, but apart from that there are no other Google endorsed options available for school staff to come together and share ideas, best practices and have their questions answered.

Why e-learning should be in perpetual beta Today at 7pm, Michael Allen, Julie Dirksen, Clark Quinn and Will Thalheimer, backed by a raft of other well-respected thinkers and practitioners in the field of workplace learning technologies will be launching the Serious eLearning Manifesto. This campaign is the result of many years of discussions, lamentations and grumblings about the state of e-learning. It's time to do something about the problem before e-learning is discarded as a good idea that, in spite of 30 years of our best efforts, somehow never got to fulfil its potential.
